Ukrainian Baked Potato Squares




1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
2/3 cup hot milk
3 lg. potatoes
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tbsp. grated onion
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. melted butter


Soften the bread crumbs in the hot milk. Pare, wash, and grate the potatoes on a fine grater. Pour off most of the potato water. Combine the potatoes with the bread crumbs and the remaining ingredients except the melted butter. Butter a shallow baking dish very generously. Spoon the mixture into it, and then sprinkle the top with the melted butter. Bake it in a moderate oven (350°F) for 45 minutes. Cut into squares. Serve very hot with sour cream and cottage cheese.

Awesome recipe. Too much butter though. And a little bland. It needs bacon strips or to be baked with scattered clumps of cream cheese.

My family absolutely LOVED this recipe. No one could get enough. We served with grated cheddar cheese and sour cream... It's pretty much a staple in my house now. I cook up about double or triple the recipe and we eat it all in two days, ha!
